Our Campaign Storyends 23 Jul 2016, 12 AM
Kidney Failure patients need three dialysis sessions per week. Each session lasts for four hours and costs about $2,000 per month. KDF Flag Day aims to raise funds for to subsidise the dialysis costs for low income patients.
The Kidney Dialysis Foundation (KDF) is an independent non-profit organisation which provides subsidised dialysis treatment to needy members of the community.
We support those whose income falls into the lowest 10% income bracket in Singapore, ensuring that this vulnerable group of patients will not be deprived of treatment as a result of their financial situation.
We currently run three haemodialysis centres (at Bishan, Chinatown, Ghim Moh) and one peritoneal dialysis centre, serving about 340 patients annually. At least $4 million is needed yearly to continue KDF's life-saving mission.
All donations to KDF will be eligible for tax deduction as we are a IPC registered charity.
